My Take On IT –
My new beautiful Purple hair straightener 🙂
My hair type is thick, curly, frizzy hair. I try to love my hair as much as possible. I splurge most on hair (and foundations as the base should be perfect) products so as to maintain my curly tresses. And yes, they look beautiful after shampoo-conditioner-serum-mousse routine. But, is that easy to follow daily? NOPE. Now and then, my mind and heart, both go towards rebonding / Keratin treatment options. But then, I always finally decide not to ruin my hair and don’t go for these chemical treatments.
Earlier also, I had a Remington Steam Iron with crimping and curling attachments. That too worked fine but with normal wear and tear, it’s life is over now. Hence, I decided to purchase a new straightening iron. I searched on net a lot for some good iron but within mu budget. Finally, I laid my hands on this one. This 1” ceramic iron is good with heating power of upto 410oF and hence conforms to salon standards. This has swivel cord with 360o rotation, making it very comfortable to use. It has a lock system also to keep it closed and compact when not in use.
The best part of this straightener is that it takes very less time in straightening my whole hair as compared to my earlier one which took almost 1 hr for my hair type. This one takes max 15 mins for my hip length very curly hair. I am in love with it. It has temperature control setting and ranges between 310oF-410oF. I normally keep 330-350oF for my hair. For my sister with lesser curly hair, I used the iron at 310 oF and it took flat 10 mins to complete the job 🙂.
Do I want to go for rebonding now? NOPE 🙂. I am now enjoying my curls as well as straight hair. I just use good quantity of my Loreal serum to minimize iron effects. Soon, I would go for a heat protectant product.
